the state street traditional jazz band...
i'm not sure when i knew, but i was certain that the band that plays at the farmer's market in portland was going to be at our wedding. i went to the market back in may, asked if they ever did events (to which they replied well we are aband!), and that was that.
imagine three old guys, new orleans jazz, a banjo, a tuba, and a saxophone...that's them!
back in our planning stages we wanted our daytime wedding reception to feel like a picnic and the farmer's market had a baby...we succeeded. their incredible music was the backdrop for eating, lawn games, dancing, and hanging out.
